Dialogue Between Muslims and Christians as Mutually Transformative Speech
In October 2007, 138 prominent Muslim leaders signed “A Common Word,” a statement emphasizing the shared values of the Christian and Islamic faiths. This inaugural lecture of the Boston College Symposia on Interreligious Dialogue commemorates the event and considers the meaning and purpose of dialogue between religions. The keynote speaker is David Burrell, emeritus professor of the University of Notre Dame. Respondents are professors Francis Clooney of Harvard and Joseph Lumbard of Brandeis.
